Lawmakers honor tornado victims

March 5, 2012

The Indiana House observed a moment of silence Monday morning, honoring the victims of Friday’s tornadoes that devastated several small towns in southern Indiana and killed 13 Hoosiers. House Speaker Brian Bosma said he was working with legislators who represent the hardest-hit areas on a way for the General Assembly to assist the victims. Thirty-nine people in five states died in Friday’s storms.
